My Self Worth Isn't Defined by a Number

Can I tell you the truth? > I don’t care about how many followers I have. <

My WInter mindset hacks (3).png

Meaning, I’m not actively concerned with the literal number that pops up on the screen when I open Facebook, Instagram or YouTube.

I feel like so many boutique owners get caught in the numbers trap. 

>> “I got 20 new followers! I’m feeling great!”

>> “I only have X amount of followers so I’m not doing well.” 

>> “I had a great day in sales so I feel really great about myself.” 

>> “I didn’t have a great week in sales so now I feel really bad about myself.”

Now don’t get confused. Do I think you should celebrate your wins? Of course. I totally get excited when I see I’ve hit a new 100 or 1000 level!

What I don’t love is your mindset linked to these numbers. Especially when it’s a matter of a few here and there. “This is happening”— so I’m going to define how I feel based on that.

Not only is it bad mindset practice, it’s also contributing to the up and down of your boutique! Remember, what we think, we create. And when we think about how bad things are… we actively are creating more bad things/times. It’s a TRAP.

Do you feel your mood and self worth being defined by the numbers you see on the screen, in your bank account or even on the scale?? We’ve GOT to fix this (maybe not all at once) ASAP! The reason your growth is inconsistent is because your mindset is inconsistent.

Ready to change this? I’m ready for you to also! During the month of April, I’m leading a one of a kind LIVE course for women who are ready to transform in a major way. I’d love to see you there! Here’s the details: www.RetailMindsetMakeover.com

YAY FOR MONDAY!!!

monday mindset hacks

From the time we are young, we’ve learned to start dreading Monday mornings around 5pm on Sunday night. “Sunday Funday” … “Working for the Weekend” and phrases like that just reinforce our deep hatred for the “first” day of the week.

WHYYY do we put so much stress into Mondays?? Monday didn’t ask for it!  And honestly, because we have had these chronically negative thoughts and emotions about it, it’s making everything just SO.MUCH.WORSE!!! 

**THIS IS A MINDSET ISSUE!!!**

What if you never fully realized what day of the week it really was? What if Monday was just another day of the week? What if we could just flip the switch an turn off this chronic thinking that Monday was ‘bad’?

I’d like to help you feel better about Mondays NOW, so here’s 3 tips for switching your MONDAY MINDSET!

  1. If you have to set your alarm, make it something soothing. Birds chirping, beautiful classical music or a fun song that makes you feel really good. When you hear the alarm, say “I’m so excited for today!” (even if you don’t believe it yet! you’ll get there!)
  2. During your morning routine, talk yourself into having that great day. Talk aloud or in your head saying things like, “My drive to work is going to be smooth and fun!” “I’m going to crush that meeting today!” “I have plenty of time to get everything I need done.” Again, even if you don’t totally believe it, we’ve GOT to start re-programming the chronic thinking that’s not been so helpful all these years. Trust me.. see what happens.
  3. If a moment of contrast occurs, like a kid spills their cereal on the floor, take a deep, calming breath, and laugh!!! Laughter will immediately raise your vibration, calm the energy of the room and help you see the situation in a more positive way. Every moment where we can ‘flip the switch’ like this is moving the momentum of your day towards ease and fun!

Try these Monday Mindset Hacks and let me know how it goes. I know my Monday is going to be awesome, even though it’s the first of two travel days in a jam packed week. MINDSET!

Ready to MASTER YOUR MINDSET with ME? Awesome. I'm teaching a 4 week RETAIL MINDSET MAKEOVER class and I want you there! But only if you are really ready to TRANSFORM! Here are the details & waitlist sign up:

My Winter Mindset Hacks!

Do you feel like you are in a WINTER RUT? The cold weather or lack of sunshine is getting you down? Did you know there are ways to combat this? 

My WInter mindset hacks.png

In today's MINDSET MAKEOVER FOCUS, I want to talk about how the winter has been (maybe?) crushing you and simple solutions you can use!

I grew up in the Northeast and spent 33 years dealing with winters-- I get it. You are stuck inside, getting sick all the time and generally just feeling down from the lack of sunshine. Did you know that mindset work includes self care and treatment? Here are some of my best WINTER mindset tips for you to try:

1. Take extra vitamin D (you can probably take more than you think!). You can easily have a doctor run the test for you (I did!) and you'll see that most people who live in a place where winter hits are vitamin D deficient. When I was tested, my levels were so low that I was on 50,000 IUDs a week for 8 weeks! WOW right? Now, when I'm in the US during winter months, I'll take 10,000 a week, either all at once or over the course of the week. Check with your doctor to see if this might work for you. I know it made me drastically happier (results will vary)!

2. Try a guided meditation where you can envision being somewhere warm, or a happy place for you. Did you know that 20 minutes of meditation can give you the same level of mental energy as 3 hours of sleep?  THAT'S HUGE. Maybe meditation feels hard, or like your brain "won't stop"? Guess what? It's not supposed to! Meditation is basically breathing, something we rarely do deeply and with intention. Here's a quick 9 minute meditation I've been doing since 2006! Guided and great music: https://buff.ly/2peIbA4

3. PEPPERMINT OIL! You guys, this stuff is like magic. If you aren't allergic to essential oils, I have personally found power in using them. My life changed when I started tapping into this plant power to help me change my state. Peppermint oil helped me heighten my overall vibration, calm my headaches (how I started using it) and generally gives me a pop of energy when I'm feeling low. The quality of essential oils is super important to their effectiveness. I learned this when the ones I bought at Whole Foods didn't work as well as the Young Living samples I got from a friend. Here's my favorite peppermint oil: https://buff.ly/2pcS0z0

For the month of April, I'm going to be cutting through the MASSIVE world of personal development world, in a new course called Retail Mindset Makeover, to give you the keys to create a better life as a retailer, holistically. I want you to live at a higher level, feel refreshed more often and see an easier path to getting what it is that you want as a boutique owner and woman.

{BOOST YOUR BOUTIQUE PODCAST} Episode 205: Why You MUST Pay Yourself

I'm going DEEPER with this whole 'YOU'VE GOT TO PAY YOURSELF" idea this week. Because really guys, you HAVE to start taking a salary from your boutique business... and this week I'm going to tell you WHY you MUST pay yourself! I feel like I'm trying to convince boutique-land to adjust from a very old martyrdom mindset, to a "money flows in and out of my business with ease and grace" mindset!

Here's my top 3 reasons why you really MUST start paying yourself:

1. We have to evolve into a modern relationship with money! Te internet has changed everything but our ideas haven't- we still get caught up in the 'work hard, make money' mentality. Let's get excited to unplug from the old and plug into the new concept of money!

2. Most flows as energy-- when you don't pay yourself, you won't be able to spend it and they cycle of in/out energy flow gets blocked.

3. We love to be rewarded as humans!! Even a small amount to allocate to yourself to get your nails done or a dinner out can feed the positive flow and give your brain a pat on the back for putting your all into the business!

How my yearly income became my monthly income...

Comment

How my yearly income became my monthly income...

I have something to confess: I made more money in the month of December 2017, than I did the entire year of 2015.

I love talking about making money. And as an entrepreneur, I’ve made a lot of money. But in 2015, I didn’t. I almost cried when I actually SAW what happened in the numbers.

You see, I started my mobile boutique The Fashion Truck in early 2011. It took off with massive success. I opened a brick and mortar version in 2013 and slowly had a downward spiral into the depths of my own mind. Turns out, I don’t really like sitting in a store (even though I had the cutest store ever!).

In 2015, I wrote my book, The Ultimate Boutique Handbook, and consequently became deeply depressed. My energy became really dull and super scattered- I was teaching illustration classes, doing styling and closet clean outs, hosting a massive food truck festival and, oh yeah, still running my 2 boutiques.

I WAS A HOT, DEPRESSED MESS.

Looking at my expenses from that year, I see $8.99 at Tedeschi over and over. You know what that was? The cheap bottles of Barefoot Chardonnay I’d drink to ‘feel better’ and ‘relax’. (Hint: they made my depression worse.)

In hindsight, I was running. Running quickly away from the fact that maybe this wasn’t my end-all-be-all dream life. Maybe I wouldn’t have the pack-n-play in the back room of the store for my future baby to take naps in while I re-did the window displays. Maybe I wouldn’t buy a house in the town I grew up in and live down the street from the store. Maybe what I wanted when I was 17 years old, wasn’t actually what the now 32 year old self wanted at all…

Believe it or not, my entire revenue in my business that year was a whopping  $38,993.77. Yep, the woman who was making well into six figures the previous years suddenly nose dived. I paid myself $12,066.66 (I’m not kidding, these numbers are directly from my profit and loss statement) and luckily I survived with the help of my now fiancé when it came to splitting the bills. 

But... SOMETHING HAD TO CHANGE.

Mid-2015 I decided to sign up for a group coaching program where the coach talked a lot about this thing called ‘mindset’. I had never heard of it before, but I was interested. I liked the idea of shifting thoughts, and a this point, I’d try anything.

I went hard and fast... instead of running away from my fears and problems, I ran at them with every technique I could find. Most of 2016, I even had my own mindset coach who pushed me on every tiny trigger that would come up.

By 2017, my entire life had COMPLETELY CHANGED. I was off the anxiety meds, sober, traveling the world, making money while I slept and utterly in love with my life.

Cut to December 2017 when my revenue was $45,073.51…FOR THE MONTH.

What's shocking to me is that once I set my mind to change, it took me about 2 years to go 360. Only 2 years!

It’s time I teach this to you. Mindset has become the most important topic I teach in 2018.

Mindset is the first 3 weeks of my big Six Figure Blueprint program. I see the women in Six Figure Blueprint that have gone full force into it make the most incredible changes- no joke. Hitting goals before the end of the month (then beating it by $3000 in the last 3 days!), hiring housekeepers and nannies, letting go of past beliefs that held them back in their new boutique business, BEING HAPPIER and seeing that their lives CAN be AWESOME while running their businesses…

I need you to get in on this. ASAP. I’m over seeing the “mindset stuff” pop up in The Fashion Truck Tribe, and I bet you’re over it yourself. I’ve decided to give you a taste of my second book and the EXACT steps I took to transform my life in a 4 week Bootcamp-style course called the Retail Mindset Makeover.

In 2017, I did a ton of trainings on my spiritual side: I got Reiki level 2 certified, I became a May Cause Miracles facilitator and completed my Spiritual Teacher Training with Gabby Bernstein's Spirit Junkie Masterclass. I flew to Sedona to meditate in powerful vortexes, have shaman healings, go to Native American medicine wheels and dive even deeper into the work I'm here on this planet to do. I took up Kundalini yoga and recorded transformational meditation tracks for my membership site.

Whatever you believe, mindset work is the deepest level of business training you can study. It's a lifelong journey of self love. "Where there's self love, there's no fear. And where there's no fear, there's no anger." Or what I like to say... no worry.

I'm ready to teach you how to tame your worry, master your mind and create more peace inside you and your business.

Does that sound like something you'd like in your life?

The 4 week course will open for registration on March 22. It will be the only time I teach this course LIVE and IN PERSON with you.

Learn my Secret to Getting Ahead!

Learn my secret to getting ahead in your boutique.png

I’m in this interesting place in my business… maybe you can relate?

I’m growing at a fast rate, but I still have big goals and a good amount of ‘work’ to be doing each day/week. I really try to take days off... but I LOVE my work and it can be tough.

But about every 4 weeks, and yes, it’s totally a ‘moon cycle thing’ (TMI)… I get really tired. Like, I don’t want to do anything but sit around and read articles on the internet and watch a movie or two.

Problem is, I’ve started this freight train of a business rolling down the track… and if I stop, it stops. Well, kind of. It used to- but not anymore!
 

Yesterday I was on a group coaching call with Danielle LaPorte as the guest coach. If you haven’t heard of this NY Times Bestselling author, you should look her up. Most recently, she wrote a book called “White Hot Truth,” and she started out 8 years ago as a business coach. So much of what she said on yesterday’s call was amazing. But one thing stuck out at me…

“You can win by being the most consistent. But consistency isn’t glamorous.”

So many of us start businesses with the hope, dream and wish of it being easy, making us tons of money and then being able to retire at 45. (Well, maybe that’s just me… I bet you have goals though, right?)

What if you knew you could get to all of those goals just by being consistent? Consistently learning, consistency posting, consistently responding to customers, consistently keeping expenses low… you see where I’m going with this yeah?

Looking back at the past 7 years, I know the times when I haven’t been consistent with my intention and action is when I’ve seen my income go down. Only recently have I learned that I need protection for myself and my business to allow me to savor in the slow days I really need. I also have learned that the most valuable thing is setting up systems for when I need a break.

Currently I can slow down, because I have:

  • Great Facebook Live videos!
  • Holly scheduling out content on the FB biz page & group!
  • Holly answering client emails that don’t need my attention!
  • Automated emails and systems on the back end that just run! 

Have you thought about how you can put automation and help into place for when you need to slow down? 

TO TRY: Right now, write down at least 3 ways you can get help or schedule automation into your business. Set the intention that you will have these completed over the next 2-4 months.

The Boutique Elite Membership is only $44 a month. (1).png

“It’s hard to understand until you’ve seen someone close to you do it.”

My best friend said that to me this week as we were recapping my 2017 over the phone. We realized that she and I have both had coaches who’ve said: “Make a decision to take action. Be consistent. And the results will pour in.”

Right, sounds easy huh? It also sounds a little stupid when you’ve asked them point blank, “What did you do that made you that half million dollars in a year?”

There’s no plan, no strategy, no step by step guide they could ever give us… but now we both see it…

Because I’ve done it.

First off, no, I haven’t made a half million dollars in 2017. But my little 2 year old business did hit six figures back in September and that’s a massive milestone I’m extremely proud of hitting.

In thinking about where I was last year on this day, I was a mess. Not such a hot mess as the year before (trust me, in 2015 I was a complete wreck of a human caught up in a net of change and anxiety). But certainly not in a place I had ever dreamed of being.

We were in the midst of a six week stay at Greg’s parents home over the holidays. We had a nice set up, but I was so obsessed with it being a failure of my business, I was getting all caught up in my head.

Until one night I had dinner at the Fairmont Hotel in Boston with my friend Stacey. Stacey is tall and powerful like I am. And when I met up with her, she was a shiny, glowing version of herself having just come out of a day with the famous Jack Canfield in a mastermind group.

I had taken public transportation into the city, since I didn’t have a car and no money for an Uber. So walking off the subway, into one of the nicest hotels in Boston, with her strutting into the restaurant shocked my system. At that moment, I needed her high vibe to lift me up and show me what was possible for me. (Have you ever had that happen to you ?)

I remember worrying the entire dinner about what I was going to eat and drink so I could pay for my half of the meal. I think I had about $60.00 in my bank account at that point.

We had a lovely dinner and Stacey’s zest for the massive six figure year she had created in just under 7 months since I had last seen her, was the motivation I needed to get my butt out of feeling bad for myself, and into action. 

You see, all she had to say to me was, “Emily, I went on Facebook Live consistently, told the truth, and helped the women I knew I needed to help. That’s it.”

If you’ve read down this far, I think you see where the inspiration for my successful 2017 came from.

>> I HAD TO DECIDE.
>> I HAD TO SHOW UP.
>> I HAD TO BE CONSISTENT.
>> I HAD TO BE AUTHENTIC.

I went back to Greg’s parents house and kicked it into high gear, making a plan for the Facebook Lives I would do over the next couple of weeks. I knew I could reach the women I felt called to help if I could just show up on video for them.

Did sometimes I have only 2-3 people watching, yup. Were there days I could barely think about what to talk about, yup. And were there days that I felt like no one really cared about what I had to say, yup. But… for 52 straight weeks:

>> I DECIDED.
>> I SHOWED UP.
>> I WAS CONSISTENT.
>> I WAS AUTHENTIC.


And with that, I’ve had a year that was bigger than my wildest dreams. I’ve been able to help thousands of women, travel to 25 cities around the world, study with my own mentors in a bigger, more meaningful way, and even support the growth of other women by hiring them to my team.

Maybe you read this and are thinking, “Sure Emily, but I sell clothes.” Well that’s where you are wrong. And if you’ve been in any of my courses, you know that you have a bigger mission that just selling nice clothes. You are here to transform other women’s lives through your clothes and energy.

I know 2018 is a massive year for boutiques, especially your’s. Are you ready for it?

We have a problem in the boutique industry. 

We have a problem in the boutique industry. 

And I see it popping up a lot in The Fashion Truck Tribe

Women get excited about selling fashion. They do all the legwork to order merchandise, set up their store, their website and social media accounts.

And then 2-6-52 weeks later, they find me. Talking about how to solve the problems they’re having.

Somewhere in that time period, they send me an email or post in The Fashion Truck Tribe. The post goes a little like this:

“I need your help!!!! I opened a store and I have no sales. Please tell me what to do. Critique my website. Tell me what’s wrong… why do I have no sales (besides my mom and sister). HELP!”

I hear you. You need ideas. You need to know WHY this is happening to you. You need to be saved. 

My quick answer… it’s happening FOR YOU. For you to learn whatever lesson you need to learn.

Maybe it’s about working on your mindset (this is most women!)… or learning proper online marketing strategies… or you need a cheerleader.

In 2011, when I wanted to start The Fashion Truck, none of this existed. There were 1-2 other trucks I could find. There were no boutique communities in Facebook Groups, there were no books and certainly no mentors.

That’s why I’m here. To help solve the problems you are having… similar to ones I had when I opened. And problems I’ve had over the past 7 years as I was growing, shifting and changing business models.

80% of boutiques fail in the first 3 years. Why? 3 reasons: 1. They run out of money, 2. The owners have a lack of education and 3. Not outshining the competition.

You’re investment in education will help you NOT run out of money and show up as a shiny boutique owner who customers love. But buying clothes and putting up a website isn’t going to cut it anymore… it’s just not enough.

And you need to know… there’s going to be a lot of free information out there. But if you REALLY want to be saved… you might need to dig deeper inside yourself. Or you might need to pay for help.

Over the past 2 and a half years, I’ve invested close to $25,000 in courses, coaches, trainings and events. Yep, that’s like buying a CAR! Have I made that money back? Yep— I’ve about 6x that investment just this year alone.

Why did I invest so much? Because LEARNING. When you don’t know WHY you are struggling you need to know one thing… you aren’t going to find the answer in a day, in a post or in an email. 

I want to help all of you who reach out… but I’m just ONE person. And I can’t see inside your heart, head and daily business ins and outs. Even if you do tell me your backstory or where you are at now, maybe I can point you in a good direction, but most likely, you need to do the real work, invest the time to do it, and sometimes even invest the money to learn what you need to learn in this moment in time.

My best advice for you: Look inside yourself, hard. Have you REALLY given it your all to sell your heart out? Are you TRULY being consistent with your actions in your marketing? Have you seen all the options I offer from $9.99 and up?

I believe in you... probably more than you believe in yourself. I know you can have a successful boutique you work in full time and make a full, living salary.

I know because I've done it. 


Time for you to do it for yourself!

Heres to making lots of friends and making lots of money,
Emily

Want your boutique to blow up? (like in the awesome way...)

Back in May, my best friend said to me, “Emily, you aren’t allowed to act surprised when your business becomes massive in a few months. You just need to be excited.” She said that because honestly, when I start a business, I go all in. There is no ‘Plan B’, no savings to fall back on and no one to do it for me.

I am really proud to say that I’ve now started and ramped 2 businesses up to 6-figures in under 2 years time; because as of early September, this business officially hit 6-figures in revenue for the year.

And no, I’m not surprised. I expect to be successful.

This week I heard, “Your business has blown up!” and all I have to say is, “Yes! I planned it to blow up!” (oh… and you can blow up too if you decide you want to!)

I have notebooks on notebooks of affirmations, plans of my future life to come true (lots have already!), journaled feelings and experiences; hundreds of hours of books on success on Audible, Abraham Hicks on YouTube and with my own coaches on calls.

I 100% manifested my business to look exactly like it does today back in late December.

See, if you haven’t caught on yet, now’s a good time to use my business as an example for yourself. Mindset is 90% of business, period. 

You might want to believe that learning new SEO for your website will gain you more traffic, or posting more on social media will get you more sales, or there is some missing clue about Instagram that will get you more followers. That’s not the answer to you making more money, it’s just not.

Mindset comes first, and then the action is inspired from it. 

With women who are struggling in their boutique, I clearly see 3 key factors missing with their mindset:

1. Obsession: You HAVE TO BE OBSESSED with your business. No, not obsessed with worrying about how much money you will make this month.Obsessed with helping your people, obsessed with making them happy, obsessed with listening to them, obsessed with trying new things to see what works.

If you haven’t noticed, I’m obsessed with you. You ask questions in The Fashion Truck Tribe, and I make podcasts to answer. You talk about being worried about money, I do a live stream about money mindset. You need a low priced, easy access way to learn how to run your boutique better, I create the Boutique Elite Membership. I am always listening to what you need and responding. 

The next book I’m writing all about mindset for boutique owners, also comes from my obsession. It’s so clearly in my path to write this book that I dreamt the cover one night in July. I woke up and feverishly sketched it in a notebook. I sent that sketch to my photographer… and last week on the biggest high-end shopping street in Paris, we shot that dream in real life. My body was vibrating as she took the photos. Talk about your dreams becoming reality. My dreams are my reality, literally.

2. Expectation: And not false expectations. A deep, resonating belief that your life is the one you’ve been dreaming of. The idea that no matter what has happened in your life and business until now— it can take a massive 180 in the opposite direction if you decide you want it to.

I teach about affirmations and positive mindset as a way to create a new life for yourself. At first, it can feel fake. That’s where most women drop off. They don’t really believe what I’m talking about, and they don’t see it immediately show up… so they drop the practice.

Many of the women in this round of Six Figure Blueprint stuck it out (and I’m super proud of them!!!) The first 3 weeks are 100% mindset work, and it can feel icky and weird to change everything you thought was true about money and success into a new paradigm… until 4-6 weeks in (where we are now), that this starts to happen: (these are actual screenshots from our private Facebook group!)

I can’t make this stuff up.

3. Intuition: Do you trust yourself? No, like when that little voice says: “do this!” Do you listen? So many of us have learned to use logic as the deciding factor in decision making. Did you know that recently Harvard Business School conducted a study that said the most successful CEOs base decisions on their intuition, even if it goes against all logic?

I’ve been re-learning to tap into my intuition in a deep way this year. 

Last Memorial Day (2016), I called a friend livid about business practices I was hearing about in the direct selling fashion world. It went against all my retail business experience and because I’m so passionate about helping women entrepreneurs succeed, I was angry to my core. Did I do anything about it? No… because I didn’t listen to my intuition to do something. 

This May 2017 I had lunch with a colleague and she said to me, “Are you helping those direct selling ladies? Because they need you.” My gut had been saying this for awhile, and the Universe clearly was sending a message via my friend for me to wake up and do something!

A day later I did one of my most watched Facebook Lives (over 15k views as of me writing this!) and two weeks later I had my highest revenue weekend to that point in time

Just imagine how many more women I could have helped if I listened to my gut last year?

I think I’ve realized I’m probably never going to be the coach that enjoys talking about Shopify apps, or Instagram engagement. Because I’m not convinced that it’s the answer to your boutique’s success.

Ready to make the money you dream about?

“I can buy anything I want.”

That saying started it all. Started me on this journey from worrying about my debit card working in line at the grocery store, to booking trains and apartments around Europe.

You see, in 2015, I was struggling. My boutiques had been doing incredible for 4 straight years. But suddenly, I wasn’t doing great. I was unhappy, overworked, depressed and because of all that, not making much money anymore. I saw a HUGE decrease in sales all of a sudden.

I went from #SixFigureSuccess to worried about literally every penny. It kept me up at night. I was scared to open my banking app because I hated seeing it with $8.00 in it. I would make a bunch of money, pay all the bills, and then have just enough to get groceries.

Was it the economy? Was it a snowy winter? Was it women just not wanting to shop?

Nope. It was me.

I was a hot mess who had hit a wall. 

To be honest with you, I ran on straight adrenaline in the first 3 years of my business. Magazines called for stories and photos, customers raved about my product, and I felt like I was on massive high all the time. And after 3 years, inside I felt like… “This is great, but what is next?” and “Gosh, I’m pooped.”

While I looked for answers and was forced to rest, my bank account got a bit hairy. 

Until I was introduced to this thing called Money Mindset. 

All of us have it, and we’re either living in one of 2 money mindset states, abundance or lack. And the energy we feed into that state is how our outside world shows up. Because I was worried about money, I had little money. (No, not the other way around!)

I was living in a state of lack, constantly talking about how I didn’t have enough, I didn’t know how I was ever going to make the next sale and always focused on how my bank account was low.

Most women I work with think it goes the other way: When they have no money, they worry about money.

But really, think about it… have you seen that when you are worried about money is when THE worst things happen. A parking ticket, unexpected bills, some random thing you owe money to all of a sudden? Yes! It’s like ‘waking up on the wrong side of the bed’ (or bank!) and as the day goes on, it just gets worse. Bad money days can last a lifetime.

Most likely you have thoughts about money (a “money story”) that were stuck in your head a longggg time ago. And because you haven’t realized or been told (hi!) yet that you have a superpower to change those thoughts, they simply haven’t changed.

What I need you to know is that YOU CAN CHANGE THE TRAJECTORY OF YOUR MONEY STORY. I did it, and you can too.

When I was introduced to this idea, I thought it was bullsh*t. 2 years later I’m riding high as a kite on my fab money mindset. So yeah, I was dead wrongFixing my money story allowed me to open up to find my next path in life and has lead me down the rabbit hole of trying to help you! 

You need to know that there is no level of Facebook or sales training that will work when you have a mindset of lack. 

But what happens when you face the crappy money mindset and re-organize the energy to one of abundance (even if it feels fake at first) is things start to change. Orders start coming in, random emails from new customers, or big opportunities show up for you. 

Again, I know because this has been my past 2 years. The abundant opportunities continue to show up over and over in bigger and better ways. Last month, we were upgraded to a $900 a night 5-start hotel suite in Bath, England just because. SERIOUSLY. I can’t make this stuff up!
